Best known for its world famous carpets, Axminster is a thriving country town, whose streets are well worth exploring. Visit the bustling Thursday street market and see the richly carpeted interior of the ancient parish church of St Marys.
This attractive seaside resort boasts numerous Regency and early Victorian buildings, many can be enjoyed from the long flat promenade. The Manor Pavilion and Arts Centre offer a wide variety of entertainment throughout the year.
Honiton boasts many late Georgian buildings.For centuries it has been famous for Lace floral and pottery. A colourful street market is held on Tuesday and Saturdays.
Ottery St. Mary

With two miles of safe golden sands Exmouth is the largest resort in East Devon .The town is famous for its floral decorations and beautiful parks and gardens which run parallel to the broad flat esplanade. The Exe estuary bustles with small craft.
Named after the long since abandoned industry of salt panning Budleigh Salterton is an elegant seaside town which still retains the quiet charm so beloved of the Victorians. The sea wall above its 3 mile beach was the setting for the painting The Boyhood of Raleigh. Raleigh himself was born at nearby East Budleigh.
